Magento connect file permissions error 1.4.01

Hi all, hope someone can help me

I am trying to get into magento connect and get the the following error,

* Check Write Permissions

Error: Please check for sufficient write file permissions

Your Magento folder does not have sufficient write permissions, which this web based downloader requires.

If you wish to proceed downloading Magento packages online, please set all Magento folders to have writable permission for the web server user (example: apache) and press the “Refresh” button to try again.

So I am trying to use putty and change the file permissions using the command

1.  find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;

and I now get this, message

[/share/Qweb] # cd /share/Qweb/magento
[/share/Qweb/magento] # find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
BusyBox v1.01 (2010.08.18-16:26+0000) multi-call binary

Usage: find [PATH...] [EXPRESSION]

Search for files in a directory hierarchy.  The default PATH is
the current directory; default EXPRESSION is ‘-print’

EXPRESSION may consist of:
-follow Dereference symbolic links.
-name PATTERN File name (leading directories removed) matches PATTERN.
-print Print (default and assumed).

-type X Filetype matches X (where X is one of: f,d,l,b,c,...)
-perm PERMS Permissions match any of (+NNN); all of (-NNN);
or exactly (NNN)
-mtime TIME Modified time is greater than (+N); less than (-N);
or exactly (N) days

[/share/Qweb/magento] #

Can someone please tellme what this means as magento connect still shows the file permissions error and what do i need to do

Thank you for looking

@skinz::

1) Make sure you are in your correct foler. (i.e. /home/yourusername/)

Locate your web root folder, it is usually named public_html or www. 

When you do you find you must be in that folder. The other way you can do it is like this (Assuming your folder structure is like this /home/user/public_html)

cd /home/user/
chmod -R 777 public_html
ls 
-l

You should see all your files with the correct permissions, also take note of the owner. If the owner is root you will need to talk to your system admin.

Hi Brent,

Thansk for the reply. I will try this when I get back home. Sorry was not subscribed to this thread so did not know that you had replied 5 days ago.

I will write back once I have tried this way.

Thanks again

Tried it last night and it seems to have worked, I have not changed the permissions back let so may have another issue but this worked I think i was being silly and had gone one level to much in the directory structure. So just chaged the permissions on the whole magento folder rathe rthan trying it from withing the magento folder. I feel quite silly but hey its a learning curve

Thanks Again

Skinz
